Paillard Bolex Lite Hand Held Or Camera Mounted Tungsten Studio Light
Bolex Lite was produced by Bolex in the 1960’s and is able to attach to all cameras and was revolutionary when it was introduced.
The Bolex Lite is simplicity itself just plug into the nearest power point and switch on. Although the Bolex Lite emits as much light as about three large 500 watt photographic lamps, it’s wattage is only about 800W.
It can be operated without worry or fear of blown fuses. The light is sharply beamed but illuminates a space large enough for use with a wide angle lens. It can be mounted on the camera by means of the shoe to form one unit.
An important advantage is the light output remains completely constant for the whole life of the lamp.
The reflector of the Bolex Lite is fully swiveling so that, for certain shots, soft lighting can be achieved through indirect or bounce technique.
